Joseph Schooling places 16th at Worlds in the 200 IM-CONGRATS Jojo! - Videos

Tonight Joseph could not better the National Record that he broke in the morning but he swam another great race and swam his second best time ever to finish 16th in the Semi Finals of the 200 IM here in Barcelona at the World Championships.

I am very proud of “Jojo” for coming back for three days at such a high level meet and keep pushing himself to find a place between the best in the World. Only a Senior to be in high school and with a bright Future ahead of him.

Here are the Videos of the races for Gisela Morales (Guatemala), Mario Todorovich (Croatia) and Joseph Schooling (Singapore). Enjoy and sorry for the not so good quality, but we have to sit too far from the pool.  Anyway at least you can see it how I saw it ;-)>

Ryan Murphy – 18 & Under National Champion – Videos & Pics

Ryan Murphy had a very good meet he still felt slightly short of making the World Championship Team twice in the 100 & 200 Backstroke events. He still was National Champion in the 50-100-200 Backstroke, third behind his teammates Caeleb Dressel and Santo Condorelli in the 100 Free. 

Also Ryan’s performances in the backstroke events he sits right now 6th in the 100 back, 7th in the 200 Back, and 18th in the 50 Back.  Great accomplishment for a 17 year old swimmer and most important great future ahead of him.
